Qbic Manchester to open on Deansgate in April 2021!

Qbic Manchester, the latest addition to Qbic’s portfolio of hotels mixing great design, sustainability, affordability and community initiatives, is set to open its doors for the first time in April 2021, subject to National Lockdown restrictions.

The fourth property by the hotel group, joining sister hotels Qbic London, Brussels, and Amsterdam, Qbic Manchester has transformed a tired 1960s office block into Manchester’s soon-to-launch hippest address under the direction of Katie Edgar, Director of Interior Design.

The anticipated new Deansgate hotel will extend the brand’s unique and friendly blend of hospitality to this much-loved city. Qbic’s contemporary and quirky philosophy is reflected in its design concept focused on Manchester’s saints & sinners creating a relaxed, unconventional hangout that is destined to become a much-loved haunt.


Inspired by the city…

Qbic Manchester has delved deep into the soul of the city for interior design inspiration. An eclectic mix of famous Mancunians provided creative concepts, all of whom were considered to be both saints & sinners of their time. Their fascinating local stories are seen throughout the interiors from the abstract wall coverings, fabrics, lighting and features.

Each of the Qbic properties have some shared undertones tying the hotels together including the trademark central bar, blue wall paneling, table tennis meeting tables and statement artwork walls. Unique to the northern city however, Qbic Manchester has introduced a darker back drop inspired by the saints & sinners interior concept. The Qbic team worked with Bobo1325, an innovative, socially conscious local artist with an ability to create visually striking pieces, underpinned by messaging around issues such as climate control and gender equality, that made this a perfect partnership.


From the ground up…

At Qbic, nothing is built from scratch. For Qbic Manchester, the site was originally a purpose-built office block which has now been transformed from a 1960s concrete boned structure to a soft brass box with a bright-pink new external cladding system, in keeping with stylish Deansgate. Each of the sites are individual, not only due to their adaptive re-use, but also due to the core principle of being inspired by the surrounding city.

Qbic procure 100% of the products for the design from UK suppliers, to reduce carbon footprint. Foresso tabletops, manufactured in Britain, feature in the stunning bedrooms and public areas elevating the brand whilst maintaining the strong eco message – the timber terrazzo contains a minimum of 65% waste stream content.

Motley, a 180-cover all-day restaurant offers locally sourced produce and seasonal specials built for sociable sharing with a ‘Waste Not’ section that uses leftovers.

Rates start from £63 per night for a small double.
